Title: Love, You Can Take It With You
Performed by Dale Ockerman Project, featuring James Durbin
Music & Lyrics by Dale Ockerman
Recorded Spring 2010 at DEO "The Spot" Musicscool Studios
James Durbin was Musicscool's first Scholarship recipient (and a 2011 American Idol Finalist!)
About the song:
"This song, 'Love, You Can Take It With You," first took form musically over a decade ago and has gone through many twists and turns with the words, other than the line at the end of the chorus I always had, 'somewhere down the line" which could translate as 'What Goes Around, Comes Around" to the West, or Karma and Reincarnation in the East.
Either way, the concept of "Love Never Dies," in a materialistic time and culture, the wise ones always tell us "You Can't Take It with You".
When James heard it, he really liked it and thought it would be a good tattoo! Thus the cover idea...I asked him what he thought of the performance and he said "this is rare for me, but I wouldn't change one thing about that vocal". Nor would I, it was basically a 'first take'.
I'd spent a lot of time researching Beatles music as a member of the White Album Ensemble for a 8 years, and Led Zeppelin music- both as a teacher at Musicscool, and member of GUITARMY, a 10 guitar student LZ ensemble. I think the influence rubbed off a bit, in the vibe of this song. Both of these groups featured James Durbin for a few years prior to his exciting and well deserved "Rocket to Stardom". Thanks to Heidi and Hunter for the loan!"
